You can edit the topmenu function and find this and place whatever html you wish like maybe this in pp-inc.php

if ( $User['adminedit'] == 0 ) {
if ( $Globals['allowup'] == "yes" && $useruploads == 1 ) {
$menu .= " &middot; <font size=\"3\"><a href=\"{$Globals['maindir']}/uploadproduct.php$catquery\">{$Globals['pp_lang']['upload']}</a></font>";
else {
$menu .= " &middot; <font size=\"3\"><a href=\"{$Globals['maindir']}/uploadproduct.php$catquery\">{$Globals['pp_lang']['upload']}</a></font>";

You can use the announcement box in Admin => Global Options to input a message to appear on the index.

I logged into the admin panel for the classifieds and went to Edit Options and there's a Global Options section there, but I didn't see any Announcement box.

Admin => Index Options

We have too many options ;)

This was sent to me from my tech Chuck?

2.42 vb enh

I'm either logging into the wrong spot, or he's talking about a different version or something...I'm logging in at:

http://coinwash.com/mb/classifiedads/adm-index.php and then going to Edit Options...and I see an Index Options section, but it only has the following items:

Display product stats on index page?
Depth (number of levels) of categories to display.
Show post count and photo details for cats without thumbs?
Show Random images on Index page?
Show Most Popular images on Index page?
Display new products indicator on index?
Forum database table prefix
Acceptable image file types?
Seperate file types by a comma and include the . (example: .jpg,.gif,.png)

Hopefully this will help him tell me what I'm doing wrong...

Yes your not using the latest version which is 2.5

Okay if you want to place a message on the index you can edit your indexhead template and place in an html table there with the message you wish to use.

Johnathon Post 2 above I gave you a proposed edit to use in your situation to change your upload ad size

Or you can do this another way as well. You should be able to edit your language file and place a font tag around the language entry as well whichever way is more comfortable for you.
